The Future of Performance - Panel - Image #1

What does performance mean in a disruptive post-digital world?

With so much competition for the 'entertainment dollar' what is the future for live art and performance? When is it live? Do we prefer to be a physical or virtual audience?. How much do we want to interact? What is a meaningful performance?

All Talks and Panels are free on a first come first served basis for a percentage of places. However there will be a limited number of places available to reserved in advance for any panel for $5. Once booked we are unable to provide refunds. CreateX will donate all funds received through reserved seating to The QUT Learning Potential Fund and the Creative Industries at QUT.
